Defining the configuration file for your deployment

You specify the information needed to deploy virtual grid nodes for StorageGRID Webscale in a configuration file, which is used by the deploy-vsphere-ovftool.sh Bash script. You can modify a sample configuration file, so that you do not have to create the file from scratch.

Steps

  1. Make a copy of the sample configuration file (deploy-vsphere-ovftool.sample.ini). Save the new file as deploy-vsphere-ovftool.ini in the same directory as deploy-vsphere-ovftool.sh.
  2. Open deploy-vsphere-ovftool.ini.
  3. Enter all of the information required to deploy VMware virtual grid nodes.
    See "Configuration file settings" for information.
  4. When you have entered and verified all of the necessary information, save and close the file.
